A Holiday Wish

Hi everyone! Are you ready for Christmas? Me? No! Every year I say I'm going to be ahead of the game so I can enjoy the season but you know how it goes it just gets crazy busy and before you know it Christmas is here. Sigh…
Well, I want to share two quick projects I created using this month's cosponsor's Just For Fun Rubber Stamps. Lets get started.


I started with a Christmas card envelope that I messed up. Instead of throwing it away I decided I wanted to use it as a pocket for a journal…the flap is actually on the end of the envelope which will make it easy to put memorabilia in it. 


For more info and photos please be sure to hop on over to the Altered Pages blog!

What is in your stocking?

Hi everyone! I'm here to share an ornament I had actually started last Christmas but with all the craziness and such that normally goes on around this time of year I didn't finish it. Well I did get a complete of photos of me starting the process though. :-)


The stocking ornament is from SmoothFoam which I had received last year for a blog hop that the Robin's Nest and SmoothFoam was hosting together. 
I started by lightly sanding and applying a coat of gesso which once dry I painted the stocking with red acrylic paint. I cut the cuff of the stocking from White on White Classic Glitter Swirl Cardstock. I  applied antique Mod Podge to the stocking and then sprinkled glitter all over. Once dry I painted one of the packages, added some lace around the cuff and I put it away for the year.


I dug it out and this is how I finished it off. I used some Prima poinsettias and added a sequin and dew drop to the center for an elegant look.


I added a mini bottle brush tree, along with bells, pearl sprays and miniature Christmas lights.


I finished off with a little gold trim and a holly leaf.


Don't you think it looks lovely on my four foot tinsel tree I got for 66% off at Hobby Lobby last year. It was a floor model and pre-lit. It reminds me of my great grandmother's tinsel tree but hers had a color wheel with it. I remember sitting at her house at Christmas time watching the tree turn different colors…such great memories. :-)

A Merry Pink Christmas!

Hi everyone! I'm here to share a project I created for a swap I was in for my dear friend Lisa aka Lisa Laughs since she loves pink I found this snowman digital image to use as the bases for the matchbox. We had to alter a 300 count matchbox in a vintage Christmas theme and include three handmade items (which I have blogged about in pervious posts) and then fill up the rest of the box with goodies.


I am submitting this matchbox for the following challenges:

Eileen Hull's Art With Heart Holiday Traditions Challenge
Paper Wing's Productions December Challenge




If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Christmas Time Snowman

Hi there! I'm here to share a quick little snowman that created using a 1" SmoothFoam ball. I love making these little guys. So much fun and easy too! All I had to do was sand a little of the rough edge off of the ball, gesso and once dry I painted with a combination of off white and white acrylic paint. Once that dried I painted two black dots for eyes, a pink dot for the mouth and I "pounced on" some pink paint for the cheeks.


I had baked up a nose from orange Sculpey clay which I followed the direction on the packaging. I adhered the nose to the snowman and then applied Antique Mod Podge all over and then sprinkled with glitter. A way to make applying the glue and glitter easier I stuck a pin in it.


I drawed out a hat on copy paper and then traced out on cardstock which I then cut out and rolled up to create a hat. I ran a small line of glue on the edge of the hat and held until it was dry. Also be sure to leave a tiny hole in the top of the hat so you can run a pipe cleaner through. I curled the top of the pipe cleaner and the end that is inside of the hat I glued to inside of the hat. I finished off with tinsel around the hat and a small felt snowflake for the base. This can be used as a table decoration or it can be hung on the tree. The choice is yours. :-)
If you have any questions please let me know.

Festive Charlotte Doll

Hi there! I'm here to share a quick project with a Hello Dolly image I purchased on etsy. I printed it I believe at 40% and then fussy cut her out, adhering her head, arms and legs to her body.


I cut two cupcake liners a part and glued around the doll to create a skirt. I added baker's twine, mini flat back pearls, a sequin and a dew drop. The plan is to attach these to some of my Christmas presents. :-)
If you have any questions please let me know.

Christmas Tree, Angel and a Blog Hop Winner



Hi everyone! I'm here to share a two mini projects I created. First one I covered a mini spool with some left over cardstock, added sequins and a little Crystal Stickles and then topped it off with a tiny little tree from Fancy Pants.


The tag I had purchased a set of these from Target. I changed out the cord for lace, added a Tim Holtz Reinforcer, pom pom trim and a snow angel which I printed out and fussy cut. I adhered it to the tag and added Crystal Stickles to the angel's coat.
Both project were super easy to do and didn't take any time at all.


Also I want to announce the winner of the Christmas Dew Drops that was being given away for the Robin's Nest Blog hop this past Saturday, November 29th. The winner is…..

Colleen aka Scrappingranny 

Congratulations Colleen!!! :-)
